Paris 2024 Olympic: First Lady Charges Super Falcons To Win Gold

The First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu has charged the Super Falcons to win the gold medal at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

Tinubu stated this on the backdrop of the team’s qualification for the showpiece after holding the Banyana Banyana of South Africa in a goalless draw on Tuesday, to break a 16-year jinx.

Recall that Nigeria had won the first leg 1-0 at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja last week Friday.

Reacting to the feat in a statement personally signed by her, the First Lady while congratulating the female soccer team said ending a close two decade old Olympic jinx means a lot to the country.

Tinubu, who said she’s proud of the team, also urged the Falcons to in turn make Nigeria proud by winning the gold medal at the Paris Olympics later in the year.

“Dear Super Falcons,

“Congratulations our Super Falcons.

“Ending a 16-year Olympic jinx is no small feat, and your perseverance and commitment have truly paid off. Your hard work, resilience, and team spirit have brought glory to Nigeria and inspired countless young girls across the country to pursue their dreams fearlessly.

“I am so proud of all your achievements.

Your journey doesn’t end here; it’s just the beginning of an even greater adventure.

“Make Nigeria proud, Super Falcons! Bring home the gold!
